the tremendous service and career of bob morton. a 22-year veteran of the washington state legislature who recently announced that he was going to be retiring at the end of the year. he was first elected to the house in 1990 and then he was appointed to the senate where he currently represents the seventh district, including stevens, and parts of spokane county. he owned a small logging business and ran cattle while also preaching at his local church and serving the community. but bob is not just an outstanding legislator for eastern washington, he's also a close friend. a mentor and the reason that i got into politics and public service in the first place. as an elected official i've worked with him on countless issues and his advice and friendship has been invaluable. he's recognized for his leadership and knowledge, good forest management, no one knows western water law better than bob and he's participated in most of the negotiations over washington water law. bob and his wife linda have five children, 11 grandchildren and i know they're looking forward to spending more time with them
. if i lived in brazil. bob's is one of the most poplar fast-food joints in the country is now serving up burgers with edible wrappers. the ad campaigns claim the customers want the food so badly they can't wait to unwrap it. here to chew through all the details including the wrapper, my favorite branding expert bruts turk kel. thanks for coming back to the show. >> sure. melissa: is this marketing genius? they shof the whole burger in their mouth because it is delicious? >> from a mark the asking point of view, the burger is so good. they can't wait. they have to tear into it. that is kind of like wearing crocs because you don't want to take your shoes off to take a shower. i'm not sure people will buy that but another thing to think about. 17% of the fast-food in the country is in cars. why they have french toast sticks and burger bites and clicken tend ders. the big messy burgers like the one you like you can't eat in the car. if they can wrap them up take them in the car, those are suvs for fast-food companies. that is where they make the money. melissa: i hear you on that point. it m
policy institute. we have bob packwood from oregon, the former chairman of the senate finance committee. we hope to get your thoughts. the other folks here have been part of the conversation. my only message to the new arrivals, please jump in whenever you see fit. we have about an hour to an hour half.fa i would direct the conversation as best i can. we're talking now about the other very small issue in this debate, and that is tax policy and how best to put the nation on a sustainable fiscal path and incorporate changes in tax policy to get there. the question of revenue, how much, where to get it, the options on the table, and like all your thoughts, they need some ideas. both sides need this to bridge this gap because right now we appear to be a stalemate. i will turn it over to john podesta to get your thoughts. knowing that john has to live, and the center for american progress has come up with ideas, and, john, maybe you would like to weigh in on some of those, and your thoughts on this debate. >> peter, following up on this morning's session, in order that a balanced approach, w
we are getting, you're going to hear from senator bob corker, republican from tennessee, his big point is insisting that hillary clinton still testify about what happened there. and then senator john kerry, who believes based on the report that you read, that the department of state has already taken a number of steps forward in a positive way. first corker, then kerry, reaction now. >> there is no question that there were people within the state department that were remiss and did not execute in an appropriate way. there are also some cultural issues, and, i mean, there were no doubt numbers of problems. and i would just say to that end, i know that secretary clinton was unable to be able to testify tomorrow in an open setting. i do think it's imperative for all concerned that she testify in an open session prior to any changing of the regime. >> i think the department has taken a huge step forward to address the lessons learned from benghazi, which are important to everybody. you know, there are 70,000 employees over there. there are 275 different posts. people are at risk, it'

in herndon is here to talk to us about the consequences for small businesses. bob. [applause] hello -- >> hello. i own an embroidery franchise out in herndon, va., and we work for small businesses, schools, corporations. i'm happy to be here today to talk to you about the fiscal cliff and how it might affect my business. i am mostly optimistic about our economy in the future, i have grave concerns about what is going on in congress and the potential fiscal cliff we are facing and the elimination of the tax cuts. a lot of the small business owners i talked to and know are in favor of keeping the tax cuts in place especially for the middle class. we believe in balanced approach and we think it's ok to allow the elimination of the tax cuts for the wealthy. as taxes increase, the taxes at my business will be effected and i will have less to pay for investments and new equipment, hiring new people, but personally my income tax rates will go up. it's already a financially constrained environment. but customers tax rates will go up creating less demand for my products and less revenue for
considering. now, even some democrats have been open to this idea. according to bob woodward's book, "the price of politics," the white house was willing to look at changing the c.i.p. as part of the so-called grand bargain last year. the simpson-bowles commission included it as one of their solutions. the president himself reportedly had a version of chained c.i.p. in his latest offer on the fiscal cliff. madam president, that's progress. it shows that some democrats are open to serious ideas and real solutions. because we need to do something to relieve the burden of washington's crushing debt, this is something to consider. more revenue is going to have to be part of the solution and republicans have said so. substantial cuts in spending must be part of the answer as well washington does noav problem, ia spending problem. that problem is centered on entitlement programs that are growing far too quickly. switching to the chained c.p.i. is a reasonable first step that we could take now to start to rein in washington's out-of-control spending so that we can save and protect social securit
that teachers be armed as well in the classrooms, governor bob mcdonnell who thinks that might be a way of mitigating the circumstances or stopping or preventing this kind of prajdy. something has to be done. >> alisyn: that's ratcheting it up further, to have teachers armed in the school. but to the flip side of what you're saying in terms of it may or may not work. it's a deterrent and if you think having armed guards, that's almost impossible to measure. how do you measure something that didn't happen? it's hard to know to protect. >> kelly: also i like facts and i like statistics, i'm into that and you know, the facts are if you have a gun in your home, that you are not likely to get to it in time. so, the idea that you have a gun in each classroom, chances are you're not going to get to it in time it and the problem, if you have a gun in the classroom, don't the other students then know that, aren't they aware of that. if you have a students like adam lanza in your class and they're aware of a gun in your classroom and where the key is kept, it raises prickly questions, not easy t
these people up you can't say bob, it's not the end of the world. [ laughter ] >> that didn't happen. >> that was supposed to end yesterday, right? >> yeah. >> here we are. >> good thing we are here. >> wow! >> wake up. the world did not end. >> how many children will be born in nine months. >> storm babies. hey, we had a hurricane irene baby. is that tmi? at least we're not live on television right now. welcome back to "fox & friends" this morning. >> let's talk about the fiscal cliff. of course, it has all of washington and the country on tender hooks. there is always a theory that some people would actually want us to go over the fiscal cliff some democrats because they would finally get the defense cuts that they have been clamoring for and it would actually serve their purposes. i dismiss that. >> to be fair, we have even had some republicans who have said that that they want. members of the tea party don't want to have anything to do with -- they want us to go into default. they want us to face these problems. howard dean on the democratic side saying, look, if we don't do it,
